A friend used my computer. Now my home page is ASK.COM. How do I return my home page to TOSHIBA.. My computer is a Toshiba laptop, 4 years old. Thanks.

Ask is an intrusive adware. Get rid of it using Malwarebyte's Antimalware. DOWNLOAD FREE VERSION, update it and use it to scan you computer.
Free Anti Malware Internet Security Software

As for how yo recover your original homepage, I really don't know wha't Toshiba's URL. You should look it up in your History and redefine it at your browser's option

I have the toshiba satellite a35-s1592 and I want to know what preinstalled programs I can delete?

Try a google search for a program called 'pcdecrapifier' it checks for pre-installed software that you may not need. No you can't remove older windows updates, I believe the newer updates build on top of the older ones. Also I use a program called Revo Uninstaller, to remove programs and any left over files and folders and registery files that windows doesn't. Hope this helps.

3 Answers has become my homepage and i hate it. I've tried to set google back as my homepage, but it stays as crawler. How do i fix this?

You probably have the crawler virus. Go to and download the free version of MalwareBytes. Install it and update it. After it is updated, run a scan. Updating it is pretty straight forward. Let me know if you have any questions.

I want to erase everything on my external hard drive. How do I do this?

If you aren't sure what you're doing, bring it to a service tech or you may render that external hard drive completely useless:
Before you start cleaning make sure you back everything up onto another disk. If you are giving your computer away check with the person or organization to see if they plan on cleaning your hard drive for you. However, the best thing to do is to clean it yourself.
Download a hard drive cleaning program or go to a computer store that sells computer software and buy the program. This is the safest way to make sure the hard drive is all wiped clean. Running the software program over writes all the data on your drive, making the hard drive impossible for anyone to read. The software works by over writing the drive many times.
Make sure you give yourself plenty of time in wiping your hard drive clean because if you have a lot of stuff it will take longer to clean.
Once your running your program and the box comes up to erase your hard drive don't forget that this process is irreversible. You will now type in the word format drive letter and hit confirm that you want to erase everything on your computer.
Installing a new external hard drive if you are not getting rid of your computer, is another option you have. You still go about erasing the old drive because you're getting rid of your hard drive. Install the new one.

Screen is white. connected to external monitor, still white. is problem lcd or video card? can i replace just card or does it require new mother board?

Problem is on the video card. You can check on your specs if your video card is pre-installed. Meaning , if your video card can be removed or it is embedded on the motherboard. If the latter is true, then you need to require a new motherboard.

If you are sure that you want a totally clean disk, you can always run F Disk. That will leave you with a blank, but formatted, hard drive.
Have a super day!
